Event Reminder: TASTE (Only few more tickets left!)

A Celebration of BC Cuisine & Wine

The Food & Wine

The event is called TASTE and it aims to pair local farmers, grocers, cheese makers up with BC's boutique wineries to create an evening of sensory harmony. It's a blind wine tasting to encourage you to step away from the baggage of your preconceptions of grape and producer and simply experience the wine. Food pairings will seek to enhance each category of wine; crisp, elegant, aromatic, smooth or spicy. From sherry, huckleberry truffles to chantrelle mushroom ravioli; you will be treated to the bounty of BC ingredients.
BC wineries involved include Blue Mountain, Wild Goose, Le Vieux Pin, La Stella with more to come.
BC ingredients will be provided by Skookum Harvest Wild Foods, Foodie BC(cheese) and Now BC Organic Food Co-op with more to come.

Gloveral Duffle done right

I found this picture while trolling the internet. It was too cute not too share. All shibu inaru dogs should wear Gloverall Duffles don't you think?

Feature: Gloverall

The word Duffle originally referred to a Heavy Woollen Cloth closely woven for warmth and manufactured in the Belgian Town of Duffel. However over the years it has come to signify a hooded coat with distinctive toggle fastenings which was adopted by the British Navy and used by officers and men of the watch to protect against the biting Atlantic and North Sea winds. The toggles could be unfastened whilst wearing thick gloves, and hoods were carefully designed to fit over peaked Naval caps.

The pictures below are from the Gloverall catalogue.

Photographs of servicemen during the 1914 - 18 war show a duffle type coat. Between the end of World War I and the start of World War II the coat was modified into the traditional Naval Duffle.

Each Gloverall coat comes with a card that has a message from Mrs. Frieda Morris, the wife and business partner of Mr. Harold Morris. It reads as follows.

"in 1950 out of sheer necessity my late husband Mr. Harold Morris and myself went into business as industrial clothing specialists with an already established connection that had been built up over a period of some years previously. We then sold cotton, leather, plastic-coated chain mail, industrial Gloves and also cotton Overalls. My husband dreamed up the name Gloverall. I made the script and had the foresgiht to register it as a 'brand' name which is now covered in most countries."

-Mrs Frieda Morris

The most well known Gloverall Duffle is named after  Bernard Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. Known as Monty he was a Field Marshal (the highest military rank in the United Kingdom). Monty was known to wear the original naval duffle which this one was fashioned after in his honour.

"Recognized worldwide as the foremost Original Duffle Coat Gloverall has gained Iconic status as a design classic. Playing a part in fashion and culture through the last 60 years Gloverall draws on it's Military and Industrial Heritage to be one of the most respected and loved British Brands.

A balance of tradition and modernity reflects through our coats with manufacturing in England and our newly introduced collection Made in London England."

The history of this coat and of this brand is really exciting, but the cultural significance and the style seal the deal.
